The internship experience for graduate students in the museum studies and historic preservation concentrations is intended to enhance their understanding of the profession and expand their education beyond the classroom. Working with a knowledgeable mentor is a key component of the internship experience. With guidance from the faculty students seek out internship opportunities both in North Carolina and across the country as they get to know their field from a different perspective.
